Advice for prepping for the American Government CLEP exam?

Hi all, junior here looking to self-study for the American Government CLEP exam and I could really use some pointers. Has anybody here taken it and can offer guidance on study materials or methods that worked for them? I want to knock out some credits before heading to college. Also, are there any good study guides that you'd recommend?

Hi there! I'm glad you're looking to challenge yourself and earn college credit while still in high school. The American Government CLEP exam is a great choice for self-study. You'll want to start by reviewing the College Board's official CLEP study materials. They offer a detailed exam guide that outlines the topics you'll need to know. Another popular option is the 'REA CLEP American Government' book, which many students find comprehensive and user-friendly. In terms of study methods, I recommend creating a study schedule that allows you to cover a bit of material each day, rather than cramming. Flashcards can also be a great way to memorize key terms and concepts. Moreover, take advantage of practice exams to test your knowledge and get a feel for the format of the test. Since the exam covers a broad range of topics, make sure you understand the foundational concepts of U.S. government and current political processes. Good luck with your preparation!
